Rowan weather: Warmer days begin

It’s warmed up a bit since yesterday – we’re starting out at 30 degrees, instead of 29.

There’s still plenty of scraping to do, though.

Today will be sunny with a high near 68 degrees. A light southwest breeze will blow this afternoon. Tonight will be clear and cold again, with a low of 35.

Wednesday warms up to 72 under sunny skies, and the nighttime low will be just 44 degrees. It should be a perfect day to sneak out at lunchtime for a moment of sun.

Warmer yet Thursday, with a high of 75 and a low of 50.

Friday will be fine for football games, with a sunny day and a high of 72 and a low around 51.

Saturday will be mostly sunny and a little cooler, with a high of 66. Saturday night will be mostly cloudy, with a low of 51.

Sunday looks like the clouds will linger, with a high of 68 and a low of 51.

It will be cloudy again on Monday, with a 30 percent chance of showers and a high near 67.
